Building Appledoc with xcodebuild but without sudo #330

What is it in the Xcode project that requires xcodebuild to be run with sudo?

I am trying to dynamically create appledoc for use by a build server slave user which shouldn't require sudo.

What is necessary for this to work:

xcodebuild -target appledoc -configuration Release install

Presently this results in this output if not run as root:

The following build commands failed:
CompileC build/ Application/GBCommentComponentsProvider.m normal x86_64 objective-c
CompileC build/ Processing/GBCommentsProcessor.m normal x86_64 objective-c
CompileC build/ Model/GBComment.m normal x86_64 objective-c
CompileC build/ Common/ThirdParty/GRMustache/GRMustacheCompiler.m normal x86_64 objective-c

My mistake. If you first run build as root via sudo then you have left-over .o files that are owned by root which the normal user build cannot overwrite.


So, What will be the fix for this? I have the same issue, please help me in resolving this. @Cocoanetics
